      What follows is neither a political manifesto nor a plan for building a utopian society.  To the contrary, I will argue, among other things that the desire to design a perfect society in theory is one of the main obstacles to achieving a better society in fact, and that the very desire to design  human communities is itself destructive.  The fundamental political problem is politics itself:  not liberal politics, not conservative politics, not politics corrupted by big money or distorted by special-interest groups, but politics per se - the practice of delivering critical goods and services through the medium of federal, state, and local governments and their obsolete decision-making practices.
